Bartram Trail — Jones Gap to Whiterock Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"The Bartram Trail is one of North Carolina’s long-distance trails and one of the state’s great hiking treasures. The trail stretches 100 miles starting in South Carolina, passing into Georgia, and ending in the Nantahala National Forest of North Carolina. The many access points can help you slice up the trail into perfect day-hike portions.

Built in honor of Philadelphia naturalist William Bartram, who traveled through the region from 1773 to 1777 chronicling local plants and wildlife, the trail was conceived and is maintained by the North Carolina Bartram Trail Society. A moderate hike with a couple of spur trails that lead to summit views is the section of the Bartram that starts at Jones Gap and travels northwest to Whiterock Mountain for an out-and-back hike."
